Alexandre is leaving a week from today. :o( But I'll be home in 18 days!
Today we went downtown to get some batteries for Alexandre's camera. The illegal copyright-infringement shopping area in our city has been institutionalized and given a building, and the sellers have been given numbered, air-conditioned booths, probably after paying some new taxes. The city allows them to sell illegal pirated knock-offs brought in from Paraguay, and, in turn, they pay a little extra to the city. Everybody wins! Right? ;)
I have just over 2 weeks of work left; I'll be hopefully/ideally planning my schedules for the new semester over the next few days; I'm trying to come up with ways to entertain myself for 11 days without Alexandre OR the internet (since he's taking his laptop with him, and some of you may remember that mine broke a few months back). I plan to make myself elaborate meals, play with the cat, detail-clean the apartment, rent movies, and try not to go crazy. If you have any other ideas, let me know.
I'll also have about 24 hours by myself with Alexandre's parents, who are very graciously taking me to the airport before I leave. If you guys have any idea of talking points, that would be even more helpful, because it could easily become awkwaaaard.... What do parents like talking about?
I don't have much else to talk about. I'm mostly updating this so Nanny doesn't have to look at the last post anymore. :oP
See you soon!
